How To Control Your Medford Home Security Using Your Smartphone

These days, a home security system goes beyond door sensors and security cameras. Your home defense can include integrated smoke detectors, smart lights, and a whole host of home automation equipment. To manage all of these elements you are able to make use of your central command touchscreen when you are at your property. When you’re not on location, you can control your Medford home security with a phone.

Thankfully, ADT’s mobile security application makes remote access and scheduling a breeze.

Getting Started With ADT Control

The first step to controlling your Medford home security system through your cell phone is by getting the ADT security app for your Android or Apple phone. After it’s installed, your installer can guide you through the basic configuration. When you’ve established your log-in details, you are able to enter it on various smartphones and other mobile devices. When wanting to engage your your alarms, tap the easy-to-identify shield. You also have the ability to access all components from this convenient interface, including window and door sensors, smart locking and lights, and video cameras.

Gain Remote Access From Wherever You Are

A home security app on your smartphone allows you to command components throughout your home with a simple finger swipe. Forgot to engage the front door lock when leaving for the day? Just go to ADT Control. You can activate your overall home security, view cameras, alter light levels, change the thermostat, by touching the right icon in your app. You can even get automatic notifications on your phone if any of your security devices sense trouble.

Keep Eyes On Your Property

If you control your Medford home security system with your phone, you can enjoy a real-time view of your property when cameras are operating. Peruse live views from any connected camera directly from your cell phone, and record short video snapshots or a single image, and watch more extensive videos as you wish. In the event visitors show up – the mail carrier, an Amazon or Grubhub driver, or a friend -- just use the bi-directional audio functionality to talk with them.

Increase Functionality With Scheduling And Geofencing

By using the main menu, you will enjoy access to a range of high-tech options. Schedule your lights, heat, sensors, and whatever else you want by creating a customized scene. In this area, you are able to designate how devices communicate with one another, and when you would like them to turn on or off. Create a nighttime scene that shuts down your common-area smart bulbs, turns on the porch light, reduces the temperature, and arms your overall security alarm. Then customize a wake-up scene that does the opposite when you need to rise and shine.

If you would like to go even more high-tech, you can turn on geo-services from your central command center or smartphone. You can now have your home secure itself by activating locks, turning off the smart lights, and arming your alarms when you drive away. Upon your return from a long day’s work, your property will come to life by automatically opening the garage and disarming your security system.
